1. By using code (ussd) 

If you want to transfer airtime from Glo sim card to another Glo sim card, ussd code is the first step to take. Note that if this method is not working properly for you, don’t forget to check and use the other two steps.

For transferring your airtime from Glo to another Glo by using code, follow the steps below:

  • Insert the Glo SIM card in your mobile device
  • Dial *131# and Glo will request you to enter the recipient’s phone number, amount you want to transfer and your transaction pin.
  • Or you my dial this code rather directly: *131*recepient’ number*amount to be transfered*trans. pin#

Please note that the default transaction pin of any Glo SIM card is 00000 and you can not use the default pin to transfer airtime (you must activate it).

If you follow the steps we explained above correctly, then the transfer of your airtime from Glo to Glo will be done fastly.
